Is that moving the Army of 82,000, 80,000, 65,000 or 55,000?

Some (most?) of these procurement programs, such as F-35/JSF, run over many years. Presumably we don't pay all the costs up front, but in a series of payments, so do not exchange rate fluctuations...

TOFO,

You say in post 37, with regard the employment of WSOs, that "The RAF has a system that works..". My point is that it doesn't, it did in the past, but not now. It stopped recruiting WSOs,...
